Good morning, Sports freaks!   It’s your Ambassador of Athletics, Davey Mac, back with another fast-moving Sports Report for ya!   Subway Series!   Big NFL contract!   World Cup!   And more!   But first!

I love Baseball.   I don’t care who knows it.   Heck…if I could…I’d marry Baseball.   Why?   Because of the absolutely epic history of the game and yet, despite the sports being around for 150 years, you still see stuff on the ball field that you’ve never seen before.   Ever.   Last night, in the Red Sox-Braves game, we saw an 8-3-5 (centerfielder to first baseman to third baseman) triple play for just the second time in MLB history and the first time it’s happened since 1884!  



The last time an 8-3-5 triple play happened in MLB history…was 1884 when the Boston Beaneaters turned it against the Providence Grays!   The Boston Beaneaters?   What a name!   In any event…this kind of nutty and fun stuff is part of what makes MLB so special.   Long Live Baseball!   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!

  • Mets Crush Yanks

    The Mets dominated the Yankees last night…9 to 3.   Domingo German pitched poorly for the Yankees and he receives the loss…while Justin Verlander looked good…as he picks up the win.   The star of the game was Pete Alonso…who slugged two home runs for the Mets…raising his total to 28 homers for the year.   The Mets improve to 47 and 53.   The Yankees fall to 53 and 48.

  • LeBron's Son Has Serious Health Scare

    LeBron James’ son Bronny reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest while practicing with the USC Trojans.   The 18-year-old is said to be in stable condition.   Bronny was just at the ESPY Awards with his family a few weeks ago.  He was a four-star recruit when he committed to the Trojans, and he’s probably a lock for the NBA.
